The Zimbabwe ‘thing’ about R Mugabe confirms once again a truism about the perception & reality of power & powerlessness: the tenuous glue holding both is DELUSION and ILLUSION aided by the tendency of humans to be IRRATIONAL. In short, leaders are often DELUDED while the masses are victims of ILLUSION and IRRATIONALITY. Occasionally, the fog clears aided by a contingent or deliberate (e.g. Zimbabwe’s military) force.
